Martha Raddatz wants us to stand with Moore accusers but pay no attention to the Menendez trial

Martha Raddatz Hypocrisy

Martha Raddatz, your bias is showing.  On one hand, you say you’re disgusted with the voters of Alabama that are willing to give Roy Moore the doubt.

ABC’s Raddatz Disgusted By Skeptics of Allegations Against Roy Moore

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2017/11/12/abcs-raddatz-disgusted-skeptics-allegations-against-roy-mooreLast week, The Washington Post reported that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore allegedly pursued relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s and that he allegedly molested a 14-year-old girl. It was the latest in the avalanche of recent sexual misconduct allegations sweeping the nation. And while many believed the claims, others took them with a grain of salt citing the timing as suspicious. On Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Martha Raddatz used her analysis to express her frustration and contempt for such people. “I don’t really know what those voters are waiting for,” she huffed.

Yet, you only talk about Senator Bob Menendez’s corruption trial for only 16 seconds.  Menendez is a Democrat from New Jersey.  Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain is what I say.

Raddatz Promises to Discuss Menendez Trial, Only Gives It 16 Seconds

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2017/11/12/raddatz-promises-discuss-menendez-trial-only-gives-it-16ABC’s Martha Raddatz was on a mission against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Sunday. After decrying skeptical Alabama voters for just not getting the message, she grilled White House Adviser Kellyanne Conway during This Week on if Moore should step aside. But no matter how many times Conway explained that she felt he should if the allegations were true, Raddatz insisted Conway was defending him. Conway called Raddatz out and pointed to the media’s double standard on ethics and failing to adequately report the corruption trial of Democratic New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez. Raddatz promised a full discussion later in the show, but it never came.

In spite of a bad interview Moore did with Sean Hannity, this only should show you that as with Bill Clinton, the progressive pagans expect us to uphold and honor our values while they get to trash them as much as they want.  Funny thing is Alabama voters might just listen to Raddatz for once.   At least according to the following story published in Newsmax.

New Poll Shows Jones Ahead of Moore in Alabama Senate Race

https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/doug-jones-roy-moore-alabama-senate-race/2017/11/12/id/825636/Democratic candidate for Senate Doug Jones has a slight lead over his Republican opponent Roy Moore in a public opinion poll recently released about the Alabama special election.

A poll of 500 voters conducted by JMC Polling and Analytics November 9 and 11 in cities across the state showed Jones ahead at 46 percent among likely voters who said they would support Jones if the election was held tomorrow. Moore drew a 42 percent response, with 9 percent saying they were undecided.

Steve Deace sums this up the best:

If the game is now anytime someone makes an accusation you’re guilty, and the credibility of the accuser who lacks explicit evidence is verboten, enjoy your star chamber.

The Left will kill us with that scam. Yet many on the so-called “Right” now seemingly want to play it.

Deace also comments about Bush 41:

This is now the third (or sixth, I lost count) different woman to come forward on George HW Bush. By rules of “conservative media” — many of whom are Bush alums — set forth this past week, his reputation is now ruined and forfeit.

Because it’s about the seriousness of the allegations, not their veracity. Oh, and you can’t question the credibility of the accusers who offer nothing but their own word, either. Those are the rules now. Mitt Romney taught me that.

The biggest danger with this kind of thinking is that it will trickle down if not already with women who have axes to grind, want to make quick money, or just get men into trouble.  I have been accused of these things myself by strange women who just did it me because they felt like it, or whatever.

It is a double standard with these people.  They want to express themselves as women, especially their sexual prowess (intentional or not) but they want to destroy certain men for noticing it.

Sadly there is and will always be a certain degree of sex appeal.  Not just in popular culture and music but in sports (Swimming would be my favorite), high culture (I am a sucker for classically trained female singers regardless if they are Soprano, Mezzo, or Contralto) etc.  What we have to do is not come across as someone who is a sexual predator either by the way we speak and/or just keeping our hands to ourselves.  I don’t have to remind you that the later was one thing that Taylor Swift did NOT “Shake Off.”  Talk about “Look at what you made me do.”

How likely is it that a single protein can form by chance?

How likely is it that a single protein can form by chance

To really answers the question of whether life was created or came about by random chance, we need to take a mathematical look at things. It may be easier to form our opinions based on something we read in a junior high science book, but there really is more to it than the surface questions asked and answered by scientists and theologians alike.

For the faithful, it comes down to faith. For the scientific, it also comes down to faith. Whose faith is more likely to be correct?

Part of the answer can be found in this short video. Those who think there’s no faith associated with scientific theories clearly don’t understand the mathematics behind the science they claim to hold dear.

When will people be forced to apologize for anti-Christian Tweets?

When will people be forced to apologize for anti-Christian Tweets

There’s a trend that has been growing for some time that is reaching a tipping point now. The trend is this: when someone becomes a big story in the news, their Twitter accounts are scoured from beginning to end in order to find Tweets that offend a particular group or protected class. In many cases, this offended group has been the LGBTQ comunity, such as the recent cases of Kevin Hart and Kyler Murray.

Hart was set to host the upcoming Academy Awards when it was “discovered” the comedian used anti-LGBTQ slurs in the past. He deleted the Tweets and apologized, but still felt it necessary to pull out of the Oscars after so much backlash.

Murray, the Heisman trophy winner, was forced to apologize after reports of his Tweets used the same slurs when he was 14- and 15-years-old.

Bigotry in all its forms is contemptible. But where do we draw the line between actual bigotry and unfortunate uses of words or opinions in the past that have been deemed unacceptable today?

Should President Obama (and for that matter, Hillary Clinton) be demonized by the LGBTQ community, mainstream media, and leftists for their perspectives a decade ago? Lest we forget, both announced sharp opposition to gay marriage when they were running for president in 2008. Which is worse, a potential head of state calling for marriage to be defined as being between a man and woman or a teenager in high school referring to someone as a “fag”?

Democratic politicians are apparently allowed to evolve in their beliefs, but comedians and college football players are not.

Anti-Christian Tweets

Sadly, some of the very people who demonize others on Twitter for using unacceptable terms in the past are the same people who also demonize Christians today. I’ve been combing through Tweets of many of the most outspoken proponents of LGBTQ rights, accusers of Islamophopia, and other anti-bigotry leaders. In many cases, these people who are against bigotry demonstrate their own bigotry towards the Judeo-Christian faiths without being big news stories.

I’m not posting the Tweets here. I will not participate in whataboutism, nor do I condone using someone’s past Tweets to highlight their alleged bigotry. There’s a difference between the militant and inexcusable posts by people like Louis Farrakhan and the posts be people like Murray, Hart, or the anti-Christian posts of their detractors. They might see it as okay to demonize people like Hart and Murray for their Tweets, but I will not participate in Twitter witch hunts on the opposite end of the spectrum. Both practices are wrong.

So the question really isn’t about when we start calling out anti-Christian Tweets. It’s about why we should openly debate each other’s perspectives without being condemned for our own perspectives. If someone Tweets something against the Judeo-Christian faith, I wouldn’t expect the Oscars to ban them from being their host. I would see it as an opportunity to share my own perspectives and hopefully show some who are against my faith that there’s something worth exploring.

Today, if you Tweet something deemed unacceptable by the LGBTQ community, you’re in jeopardy of losing much. If you Tweet something against the Judeo-Christian faiths, the left sees it as acceptable. Social media is the most hypocritical medium around.

9 discoveries that confirm the Bible

9 discoveries that confirm the Bible

In this extremely interesting short video detailing archaeological discoveries that confirm the historical accuracy of the Bible, the folks at World Video Bible School highlight some amazing evidence. I don’t know much about WVBS, but I can endorse this video itself.

Here’s the first of the 9 discoveries:

The Pilate Inscriptions

In 1961 in an Italian sponsored dig in Caesarea, archaeologists uncovered a stone that had a Latin inscription on it that said “Pontius Pilatus… prefect of Judea.” That Pilate is mentioned in the Gospel accounts on several occasions. You read in John 18:29:

Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?

The find verifying the New Testament statement that Pilate was the prefect of Judea.

8 more

All of these discoveries are proper, indisputable archaeological finds. It’s one thing to contest the Bible’s authenticity as the Word of God, though its very presence and the takeaways we can draw from it point the faithful to the truth. However, claiming it as being historically wrong is being debunked regularly.

The authenticity of the Bible as a historical document is no longer a valid argument against it. As more archaeological evidence points to its physical truths, so too should its words and lessons be completely trustworthy to those seeking the truth.
